The school superintendent is interested in determine whether or not there has been a significant change in the classification between last school year and this school year. The expected number of freshmen isReference student body problem statement above, which of the following is a correct statement if the hypothesis to be tested at the 5% level of significance?Select one:A. the null hypothesis should state that the classification for this school year is independent of last school year classificationB. the alternative hypothesis should state that the classification for this school year is independent of last school year classificationC. the null hypothesis should be pfreshmen=0.30, psophomores=0.24, pjuniors=0.26 , pseniors=0.20D. the alternative hypothesis should be pfreshmen=0.30, psophomores=0.24, pjuniors=0.26, pseniors=0.20E. None of the above answers is correct
